If God gives us GRACE, we must bare fruit or He will cut us down and cast us into the fire. So we are required to bare fruit (MONEY) for God, fruit and giving money are synonyms with being a good and faithful servant
Silly boy, grace is unmerited favor. We can't earn it, we don't deserve it and we can't keep it like a coin in our pocket. We must share. I realize it might sound socialist to you but jesus dosn't give a rats tail what you or I think. He had the love for us before time existed.

I have several in miniature, but not a full-size one. I doubt I'd fit anyway... I'm on the tall side, apparently. :)
that would be the only way i could have one. i remember the two hot ladies driving one in cannon ball run.

The epistle of Danny1988 to the Galatians.

Galatians 5:

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance (MONEY): against such there is no law.

No believer will go to hell, but all false professors will go there. Jesus said, you will know them by their fruits.

On that day many Christians will come to Jesus and He will say to them, depart into the everlasting lake of fire I never knew you.

The majority of Christians are going to hell, because they are wicked unprofitable servants
ok , so that tells me that you believe we will go to heaven based on what we do or dont do , and not by trusting what Christ has done for us , and receiving his righteousness imputed to our account
thats what i needed to know

Remember they hated Jesus before they hated me
I don't know about you or your heart... but God does.


I do know about my own heart... which loves Jesus more than I could possibly describe...

You seem to be functioning as a wolf, a false accuser, a blind angry, bitter, liar who is pushing a false money focused doctrine....


you seem to be prideful, boastful and lacking in not only understanding but patience and love as well


you also hate reproof


if you cannot have an actual conversation the most I can do is pray for you

Well...

Mat 12:
34) O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

so according you, real Christians are making money, and lots of it, living the exact same way a rich non Christians lives?

one question, if this is true, why is it none of the early Christians lived this way?
Can you cite any Bible verses for this, the early Christians were successful fishermen, Doctors, Tax Collectors etc. they weren't exactly losers

such abuse of vocabulary !

should you really be calling "Christian" the people you say are doomed to hell?

And this is the will of Him who sent Me,
that I shall lose none of all those He has given me,
but raise them up at the last day.
(John 6:39)
and should anyone be sitting as judge over those that call on His name based on cash flow ???

they made a living but they didnt create fishing empires like your teaching.
Essenes, sect of John the baptist and ebionites (translates to "the poor") both shunned material wealth because they believed real blessings were in heaven. which is exactly what Jesus taught.

Everyone will be judged according to what they have done. Faith without works is dead, just as most Christians are dead in their sins and trespasses. Works are the fruits of faith, which you received by grace. If you don't bare fruit it's a sure sign that you're not saved but self deceived.

So now you're accusing people who do not agree with you of hating Jesus?
I'm not accusing anyone one of anything, I'm only applying the light of the scriptures to the comments and people get offended because the truth hurts

Please don't waste your energy trying to convince me that God is pleased with losers. That means the parable of the talents was a fairy tale

We will be judged at the judgement seat of Christ ( only believers will be there ) for what we did AFTER we were saved
Im all for bearing fruit , of course we are called to do that , but its NOT what saves us or keeps us saved
And Christians ( i prefer to say Believers , cause alot of people say they are Christian when they havent trusted Christ alone for their salvation ) are NOT dead in their trespasses and sins , we have been redeemed
You need to rightly divide the word , and distinguish between the covenants

sorry renewed , put your post in there by mistake :)
